I become interested in the search for a radical spirituality that can emerge from living against the backdrop of war and censorship. Emiko and I begin work shopping Mapa/Corpo as a response to the invasion of Iraq. The performance/installation is a poetic, interactive ritual that explores neo-colonization/de-colonization through "political acupuncture" and the reenactment of the post-9/11 "body politic". It's clearly an anti-war performance and, for the first two years, we are only able to present it in Latin America, Europe, and Canada. Only after mid-2005 do US presenters dare to book it.
